I like words and writing very much but I prefer using a visual language.
Images always had the power to bypass my questioning mind and to land straight into the centre of my heart. With years, I learned, that receiving an image and expressing myself through images is my preferred way of communicating with myself, and… with my Soul.
For this first post, I wanted to create some kind of tangible representation of this virtual container. The idea of boxes came to mind. I vaguely remembered from reading, many years ago, Twyla Tharp’s book The Creative Habit, that she always started her projects with a box. For her, a box was a storage that allowed her to feel organized. For me, in this case, it is a representation of what I want this space to be but can’t name and express it yet. The boxes themselves, were inspired by a book cover - Clare Youngs’ Creative Collage.
1. Find or create a small box.
2. Print or cut out from magazines some images that speak to your Soul.
3. Take a glue stick and a deep breath.
4. Watch what happens.
* If you decide to play along, take a picture of your box and post on Instagram with the hashtag #magiccontainer + tag me @rainbowsylvia – I would love to see what you have created!
